Most Underappreciated

John F. Dovidio

Oxford University Press

John F. Dovidio reflects on his most underappreciated work: the two empirical papers he wrote in collaboration with Sam Gaertner that related to affirmative action and race relations. Dovidio and Gaertner performed a laboratory experiment to test the hypothesis that “although recent protests by whites regarding affirmative action seem to articulate only the concern that qualified whites will be subordinated to less qualified blacks, … it is possible that the reversal traditional role relationship itself represents the primary threat to whites”.

Keywords:   John F. Dovidio, Sam Gaertner, affirmative action, race relations, protests, whites, blacks
